Even though the Founder of Groupon, Eric Lefkofsky has established many other companies alone or with other partners, one of the startups that are close to his heart is Tempus. This Chicago-based start-up has a partnership with UChicago and many other health care organizations to offer doctors a comprehensive data that can be used to treat their patients. They will provide all the latest data and information that they will need to help their patients and improve the quality of services provided to their patients.
Tempus with the support of the University of Chicago will contribute to building this exhaustive database. By studying more than thousand cancer patients and finding similarity in molecular patterns, the company aims to aid physicians in treating their cancer patients. According to reports, more than two million women are affected by breast cancer in the United States every year. It is the aim of the company to improve the quality of service that is provided to them by joining hands with many different universities and organizations to collect data that will allow doctors and researchers to learn about the disease and how it affects people differently.
